UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Russia threatened several Eastern European and Central Asian states with retaliation if they voted in favor of a United Nations General Assembly resolution this week declaring invalid Crimea's referendum on seceding from Ukraine, U.N. diplomats said.
According to interviews with U.N. diplomats, most of whom preferred to speak on condition of anonymity for fear of angering Moscow, the targets of Russian threats included Moldova, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan as well as a number of African countries

“I think Russia is a bad loser. They lost and they did by 100 votes.”
Are the French doing a victory lap over this meaningless vote? The 100 countries that voted with the West accounted for less than 30% of the global population. Note that many of these were puppet states of the European Union obliged by treaty to vote the same way. The 93 countries that refused to support the West by either not showing up, abstaining, or outright voting for Russia represent over 70% of the people of the world.
This isn’t a victory. This is a rather meaningless failure vote, and the inability to get either India or Brazil to vote against Russia is an embarrassment for the Obama’s “stellar” UN squad.
Sounds like Putin is using the same tactics that Obama has been using against conservatives and patriots.
Remember the threats over Sequestration?
Remember Dopey Obie shutting down the parks and monuments?
The big difference between Obama and Putin is that Putin isn’t afraid to face down his equals.
Obama uses his Police State to push WWII vets, cancer victims, and other citizens around, but folds like a $2 chair when challenged by foreign leaders.
Same thing we and every once powerful nation does. We just do it by withholding ‘financial aid’ of people won’t cave to our demands...such is international politics. Is anyone really surprised this is how the world works?
Israel and Iran didn’t support, strangely. Perhaps Netanyahu decided to park a turd on Kerry’s desk, and deservedly so.
And look at this
Looks like Obama just lost a host of countries who would have voted us under normal circumstances, all thanks to the homo lobby.
But, but, Rooters says it is, and they wouldn't lie.
Several of these states are third world countries that rely on US aid. The fact that they abstained is a message that the influence of America is in terminal decline. Israel did not vote.
When we and the Obama Homos do it, it is Holy and just, but when the Russians do it, then it is obviously evil and mean.
.....Oh, and needs to be reported.
Azerbaijan, Benin, Bulgaria, Chile, Greece, Iceland, Libya, New Zealand, Sweden and the United States are among the countries that voted in favor of the draft resolution, while Armenia, Belarus, Cuba, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea [North Korea], Nicaragua, Russia, Sudan, Venezuela and Zimbabwe voted against.
Angola, Argentina, Brazil, China, Ethiopia, India, Kenya, Mongolia, Nepal, Paraguay, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Uganda, Uzebekistan and Zambia are among the nations that abstained from the voting at the 193-member General Assembly.
MOSCOW, Russia, July 30, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A Russian nationalist youth group is encouraging youth to have more sex in an effort to combat the nation's devastating demographic crisis, reports the Daily Mail.
In a lengthy special report the Daily Mail documents the activities of the Nashi youth movement, which is sponsoring a summer camp attended by some 10,000 Russian youth this summer. Not only are Nashi organizers encouraging the youth to have more sex, but they have designated a special area at the dormitories, the Love Oasis, for young men and women to engage in sexual intercourse. According to the Mail, condoms are unavailable in the camp.
"They [The pre-historic mammoths] became extinct because they did not have enough sex. That must not happen to Russia," said a Nashi organizer to a group of assembled campers.
The nationalistic camp involves two weeks of lectures, reported by some Western sources as being little more than anti-Western "propaganda," as well as a strenuous regimen of physical exercise. Numerous young couples have also been married at the camp, with 25 couples being married at the beginning of the first week, and ten to be married at the beginning of the second.
While many people, especially in the West, are finding in the Kremlin-initiated, and Kremlin-loyal Nashi youth group a disturbing image of similar groups started up in Nazi-era Germany, the camp's approach to sex is further evidence that the Russian government is not unaware that a demographic crisis is leading the entire Russian nation towards an early grave.
The war in Georgia has provoked unprecedented levels of patriosm in Russia. The majority of the population supported their army's actions in the Caucasus. And even the fiercest critics of the Kremlin have now become proud Russians.
Members of the Kremlin-loyal youth organisation "Nashi" wave flags and hold a banner during a protest in front of the US embassy in Moscow during the Georgia war.
Russia's president devoted the largest part of his annual State of Russia speech to reversing Russia's population decline.
If Russian couples have a third child, they will get a baby bonus, better health care, and free land to build a house or dacha, Russian President Dmitri Medvedev promised in his annual State of Russia speech.
Political analysts were hoping to hear about missiles or democracy. Instead they got babies.
What he did not say is that Russia compensates for its aging workforce by importing about 10 million laborers a year from Central Asia. After the United States, Russia is now the second-largest importer of workers. This influx of overwhelmingly Muslim workers creates tensions in Russia, where the population is largely Orthodox Christian.
Russian Orthodox 15-20%, Muslim 10-15%, other Christian 2% (2006 est.) note: estimates are of practicing worshipers; Russia has large populations of non-practicing believers and non-believers, a legacy of over seven decades of Soviet rule
Muslim 47%, Russian Orthodox 44%, Protestant 2%, other 7%
Muslim 75%, Russian Orthodox 20%, other 5%
Sunni Muslim 85%, Shi'a Muslim 5%, other 10% (2003 est.)
Religions: Muslim 88% (mostly Sunnis), Eastern Orthodox 9%, other 3%
Eastern Orthodox 80%, other (including Roman Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, and Muslim) 20% (1997 est.)
Armenian Apostolic 94.7%, other Christian 4%, Yezidi (monotheist with elements of nature worship) 1.3%
Good. it’s time for people to tell the libs to shove their social engineering. And the GOP as well. God knows they contribute to it.
This is the same lesson a lot of businesses and orgs/churches need to learn. Freedom costs.
I can’t get over Israel not voting with the US. That’s a message. Sick of the Palestinian BS negotiations.
They would be crazy to stick with us over Russia as long as Dems control power. And to be honest, to ever trust us again...because Dems may someday regain power after Obama. Over half of America is insane.
I fully consider America to be an OCCUPIED country at this point. We are the resistance.
Yup. I think we must accept that America is over. Now we have to build a new one. We cannot save what is lost. It’s not a matter of semantics. It’s a mindset. One keeps us on defense and the other puts us on offense. And no one ever won a war, real, cultural or spiritual, by defending.
You have to take on the mind of new revolutionaries. The Founders knew this time would come. They just didn’t know how, which meant all the safeguards they put in place could not keep the wolves outside the gates forever.
Wellll, this is obviously another “false flag” operation — clearly the caller was just Obama, disguising his voice. /sarc
Iran? Of course Iran didn’t support it. Why would anyone think Iran would support a resolution against Russia?
My statement was more shock that Israel took the same position as Iran. A rare occurance.
A piece of paper can’t stop a tank.
"Strongly worded condemnation? Sure, if you like it, you can keep it."
Israel’s capital is not internationally recognized so Israel had no reason to side with the West.
China also abstained on the instructions of Russia.
They have their own ambitions. Quid pro quo.
This is the “Putin Way”, much like “The Chicago Way”/ “New York Way” (make them an offer they can’t refuse).
That would be “Putin the Blitzer”, “Emanuel the Ballerina” and “DeBlasio the Red”.
Let’s throw in Crazy Eddy Schulz and make it a “foursome”.
You mean like China and Indonesia? Are you freaking kidding me?
That’s like saying the majority of people voted for Obama. I mean really? 90% of people that voted for Obama did so because they were voting themselves more free money from rich people.
Just because the majority of the population of earth didn’t join the vote doesn’t make it right.
That wasn’t the point. I was pointing out that the French were celebrating a failure.
